it will depend on the vet to whether or not she'll need to have her shots first. a lot of vets nowadays have started prefering that the shots be done first. whenever you call to schedule her, they'll let you know what you need to do

if she's had any "friends" around, you'll want to have the vet make sure she isn't pregnant, but she can still be fixed while in heat

good luck!!

I would get her shots done ASAP. Especially since taking her to the vet offers the chance to be exposed to the things that shots are going to protect her against.

I'd take her in to be spayed ASAP also. As long as she's in heat there is the possibility sh'ell get pregnant. Have her spayed before she gets pregnant.

As stated get her shots caught up as most vets do require this. If she's exposed to other cats not in your home or outside cats then she also needs tested for feline HIV and leukemia. Check with your local animal shelter as they usually offer low cost shots and also spaying. I usually buy the certificates at the humane society then take them to a vet locally that will honor the certificates. They may charge an additional fee for pain management but that's usually about all. Much less expensive and they still get the quality care they need.

At our clinic, if shots aren't up to date, we can do them the day of surgery. As far as spaying while in heat, we can do that too, there is an extra charge though as it increases the risk. We also recommend combo testing for FIV and Feline Leukemia before doing the vaccinations as well as bloodwork to test the liver and kidneys to be sure they can process the anethesia. It's not required, but highly recommended. Pain injection or pain medication to go home is also recommended and is extra.
